A Jewish taxi driver from Holon was shot by assailants after taking an Arab passenger in to the Palestinian city of Kalkilya. The taxi driver, approximately 35 years old, was shot in the shoulder and the leg, but continued to drive until he reached the Zofim checkpoint, where he alerted authorities to the incident. The taxi driver was treated by MDA teams and taken to Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba in moderate condition. Police are currently investigating the incident. The taxi was recovered near the checkpoint, where the taxi driver apparently parked it.
